GovExec Daily: What Musk's Twitter Purchase Means for National Security

The podcast discusses what the upheaval at the social network means for feds, the public and contractors.

Elon Musk’s stewardship of Twitter has been chaotic, with Musk changing longstanding policy nearly every day or laying off employees en masse. Last week, President Joe Biden said that it might be worth looking into Musk’s international relations with foreign countries, being that Musk’s SpaceX operates its Starlink satellite internet access service to 40 countries. Additionally, SpaceX is a key private sector partner of the Pentagon and NASA, so Musk is deeply connected to the federal government. 

GovExec Daily's Adam Butler and Ross Gianfortune discussed the information ecosystem under Musk's Twitter era and how it affects security. Dan Meyer, Managing Partner of Tully Rinckey’s D.C office, also joined the podcast to discuss what kind of national security questions Musk could face.
